Betting Season 2017: We have a Winner!
Fantasy Betting

The PCM.Daily 2017 Fantasy Betting Season has come to an end after the last open bet has just gotten paid out. It has been a very exciting season with about 250 bets being opened and the continuous change of the look of the top 5 made it an extremely thrilling competition right up until the end of the cycling season. This time around we've had the pleasure of witnessing what has essentially been a 3-horse race between Jarci, Vien - who tried to go all-in and lost all his earnings only 1 month ago - and wackojackohighcliffe for the majority of the season. Eventually, the latter came out on top with a very interesting tactic - but clearly a fruitful one!

So it's now time to take a look at the best 10 gamblers of the season:

1. wackojackohighcliffe 237300 PCM$
2. Jarci 171344 PCM$
3. Atlantius 40100 PCM$
4. Margh Norway 24000 PCM$
5. Croatia14 20861 PCM$
6. WimB 19600 PCM$
7. Yellow Jersey 15832 PCM$
8. Deksel 14480 PCM$
9. Selwink 13100 PCM$
10. Apen 11942 PCM$

It's therefore wackojackohighcliffe who gets the crown, just like we anticipated! Pendleton's manager in the Management Game and long time forum regular, wacko was able to find an unprecedented winning strategy, by exclusively relying on 'Another Rider' to win each of his 11 attempted bets. Luck was surely a factor in his overall win, but you can't deny that he certainly took some calculated risks, which is why he beat the bookie 9 of those times.

He had his largest pay-outs in 2 back-to-back occasions: he did in fact predict that an outsider would snatch both stage 7 and the general classification of the Tour of Britain, and he got 170k in PCM$ out of those 2 gambles alone. He was quick to follow those wins with another punt, this time on Tour du Doubs, a minor race in the long European calendar that yielded him some major earnings - 64k PCM$ to be exact. It's maybe worth noting that his earnings have been the absolute highest of the short history of Daily's fantasy betting, which just adds to its prestige! Congratulations wacko, enjoy your, uhm, bragging rights!

It was a close battle between him and Jarci, who just like this year's winner didn't bet a lot, but made his few attempts count. Jarci has had this year's largest overall pay out, thanks to his correct guess in a head to head between Kelderman and Oomen at the Vuelta, which added a crazy 171,244 PCM$ to his balance. That's got to count for something, surely, even if he didn't win the overall competition! Out of his 9 bets, Jarci won 7 of them, the last 3 of those being all-ins that made him 35, 100 and 171k respectively. Crazy to think that it still wasn't enough!

It's then Atlantius rounding out the podium. Valio's manager wasn't really in contention until one of the very last of his gambles. At 25:1, not many people saw Martin Toft Madsen as a potential winner of Chrono des Nations, but he believed in it enough to throw 1640 of his PCM$ at that slim chance. Other than that, he wasn't exactly lucky in the remainder of his punts, by only winning 3 other bets out of 13. At least it just goes to show that if luck hasn't been on your side you shouldn't give in!

Thanks to all of the community for taking part to the 2017 Fantasy Betting even just once, and hopefully we will see you back in 2018 for the next, exciting season!

I am so set to Man Game time right now that I was about to comment how late this was to be coming out almost in February, and then I realized it's only November in real life. Pfft

Had a lot of fun betting this year. I don't follow cycling closely anymore, but I got lucky with some early season bets and was one all-in bet off finishing 1st. Thanks for doing this, always makes watching cycling more interesting Pfft

Martin Toft Madsen brought both Atlantius and me in the Top5 - what a hero Grin

I'm sure there was some sort of cash prize for this...

Cool to win something though, thanks for the numberplate, I'll have to work out how to get it in my signature.
